Key Messages


 


Based on the current position in regards to the coronavirus, the key messages for the general public


are:


 



  • If you have travelled to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea,Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau in the previous 14 days and are experiencing cough or fever or shortness of breath, you should to stay indoors, call your GP or if your surgery is closed ring NHS 24 (111) informing them of your symptoms and your recent travel.




  • Do not leave home until you have been given advice by a clinician.


 



  • This is peak season for respiratory and flu-like illness. There will be cases presenting with symptoms of cough, fever and shortness of breath, but these are highly unlikely to be novel coronavirus.


 



  • The public can be assured that Scotland is always well prepared for these types of outbreak and will remain vigilant. We have a proven track record of dealing with challenging health issues and have established public health and infectious disease experts working round the clock.


 To protect yourself and others, it is best to:



  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.

  • Bin the tissue.

  • To kill germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.

Ladies between the age of 16-64 can attend Boots Pharmacy in Beauly if they feel they have a urine infection and can be treated by the pharmacist.

Home Visits

We will visit housebound patients if needed.  However we would ask that patients with transport difficulties explore other options for getting to the surgery if at all possible. We realise that getting to the practice can be difficult and we can offer some appointment flexibility if necessary around bus times if this is appropriate.

Doctor's bag

Please telephone Beauly 782214, preferably before 10:00. An early request allows the doctor to assess priorities and plan an efficient route for visiting.

Reception staff may ask you about the nature of the problem in order to assess the urgency of a visit. If there is doubt, the doctor will speak to you.

More equipment and facilities are available at the surgery than at home and about four patients can be seen in the surgery for each one at home. It will therefore be appreciated if you can come to the surgery whenever possible.

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
